Property assets are essential to the services delivered by West Lothian Council. Managing these assets is a structured process that seeks to ensure best value for money from property assets and improved performance in meeting strategic needs.

The Property Management and Development services is very much open for business. Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, our staff are currently working offsite and we would ask that all enquiries be emailed to propertymanagement@westlothian.gov.uk where a member of our team will access and action them as necessary. Whilst we have robust business continuity measures in place, customers may experience some impact to service delivery. We are grateful for your patience and understanding at this challenging time. Should you require emergency assistance out of hours, then please contact the council's emergency out of hours service on 01506 280000. 

It is recognised that:

  • Managing property assets effectively is a key driver of service transformation.
  • Properties are at the centre of the public's perception of local authority.
  • The value of property assets and expenditure on construction and running the estate is significant.
